and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide off

of spending cuts and tax increases that could push the u.s. into another recession. maria bartiromo is the host of cnbc's "closing bell." >> well, people are putting two and two together, saying wall street dropped the day after the election. simple question, why? >> you're absolutely right. well, first off, people are worried about higher taxes, higher regulation under it had obama presidency. but also, it is this near-term worry about the fiscal cliff. at the end of this year, we will see $600 billion of spending go away. there are spending cuts coming, that means, defense companies, transportation, construction, they may very well have to lay off workers. in addition to that, we've got the highest tax increase coming on virtually all income levels. these two things will coincide, and that is the fiscal cliff to basically possibly push the u.s. economy into recession unless congress does something about it. >> is wall street basically registering its doubt and skepticism that either party can come together and resolve this? >> that's right. i think we will see compromise. already

u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem that requires real solutions. but instead, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming claims have been debunked time and time again. >> you know what the problem is? there's more people living at the shore so there are more impacts. this is nothing to do with global warming. >> you

behind such a wide swath of destruction how will the devastation effect the already fragile u.s. housing market? >> brian: let's ask ceo of sharpen institute. alex, what short-term for the housing market that many people believe was on its way back? >> the housing market has been on its way back. we have three things that are going to change in the short-term. one of the things affected in the northeast is of course there is just not enough houses. we have a 50 year low of inventory right now. so where we were seeing a recovery, we're now going to see some struggle just due to the incredible damage. this is the second costliest hurricane in the history of the united states. so, when you look at the numbers, $50 billion in damage, it's going to take a while for the northeast to recover. overall, however, the housing market in the u.s. is strong due to investors and banks finally moving through distressed inventory. short-term we will see an effect. long term this shouldn't effect the entire housing market. >> steve: short-term you are talking about the next three to six months. all right.
're all dying to have. i mean, they come to me as a u.s. senator and say, look, we have to have tax reform to be competitive. we've got to have lower energy costs and lower health care costs. we need regulatory relief and a level playing field. those are all the things that mitt romney has been talking about. not just recently, but for months in his campaign. i think what he has got is a positive proactive approach for the economy, and that's going to make a difference in ohio. not just with auto companies and other manufacturers, but with folks who are frustrated with where we are. that tends to be a difference at the end of the day, and we'll see that in polling results. >> okay. let me ask you, i don't think we're going to get anywhere on the ad truthfulness or lack thereof. let me move you to hurricane sandy and something that karl rove, which you know, was the architect of the bush campaign from the deputy white house chief of staff for george w. bush, and he said the washington post, "if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk
